PRINCE GEORGE'S REALTORS® TO PARTNER WITH HABITAT FOR HUMANITY . . . PGCAR is moving forward with plans to partner with the Maryland Association of REALTORS® and Habitat for Humanity to restore a house in Prince George's County. PGCAR will be responsible for raising the necessary funds and providing the manpower to restore a home in our area so that a Prince George's County family will have the opportunity to experience home ownership. This is a first for our Association and we know that we can count on our members to participate with us in this very worthwhile and exciting project. We are asking all members to write a check to the Partnership for Housing Foundation. No amount is too small. All checks should be mailed to the Association office at 8400 Corporate Drive, Suite 225, Landover, MD 20785. If you would rather use your credit card, please contact Joan at the Association office. Thank you in advance for your generous support.
